Medexter Healthcare develops and markets knowledge-based systems for clinical decision support. The aim of these high-tech software solutions is to promote quality assurance and patient safety in diagnosis, therapy, prognosis, and patient management.
Given the growing complexity of medical data and processes, these systems have become indispensable. They save the effort of performing repetitive and laborious work steps, thus allowing physicians and medical personnel to devote more time and attention to patient care. The purposes of our innovative software solutions are three-fold:
- to safeguard medical quality and improve patient care,
- to allow comprehensive quality management that takes into account medical workflows and administrative conditions, and
- to achieve efficient and cost-effective utilization of the available resources.
Medicine Safety Code Initiative (August 31, 2014)—A paper entitled "Towards a global IT system for personalized medicine: the Medicine Safety Code initiative" was co-authored by members of Medexter Healthcare and presented at the 25th European Medical Informatics Conference (MIE 2014) in Istanbul/Turkey.
Arden Syntax: Technical Integration I (July 7, 2014)—The Arden Syntax server harbors the Arden Syntax medical logic modules (MLMs). These knowledge packages are written, tested, and compiled using the integrated Arden Syntax development environment (IDE). To connect the server with host systems and data sources, Medexter offers three basic forms of technical integration into different health information technology (IT) environments. Using the first form of integration, MLM and event calls are realized by SOAP or RESTful web services, with the respective service also transferring the necessary data required for MLM processing. Examples are (a) the connection between Medexter's Arden Syntax server and Siemens' (Xetra: SIE, NYSE: SI, LSE: SIE, SWX: SIN) hospital information system i.s.h.med via SOAP web services, and (b) calling of and providing data for the iPhone and iPad App Hepaxpert via RESTful web services.
